Danville Trip

This past weekend Paul and I went to Danville to see my brother in law and my sister because he finally got a visa to come to the US. I haven't seen him since there wedding which was three years ago and Paul has never met him. It was so good to see him and see them together. It was also Max's first trip to Danville and first airplane ride. He did very well with everything.

We had a lot of fun while we were there. We first were able to meet up with some of our friends that we have not seen for a while. It is always so good to see friends and catch up with everyone.
On Saturday, we all went to San Francisco to have a picnic lunch, but it was interrupted with rain. Then we walked around Per 39 which was a lot of fun, but it was very cold. We are both use to Arizona weather now.
Then Max was able to meet his two cousins for the very first time. He met Carter and Will who are both 3 months older then him.On Monday I got to hang out with my mom, Liz, Martha and Will. We drove to Napa, had lunch and walked around. It was so good to see Liz and her little boy. The last time that I saw him was in October and he has grown so much since then

On March 1, we blessed Max here in Arizona. Paul did his first baby blessing and he did a great job. It was so much fun because we had all of Paul's family come up from Rancho Cucamonga and my mom came also from Danville. On Friday is when everyone arrived and we all went out to dinner and had some Bahama Bucks. For the ones that don't know what Bahama Bucks is, it is a great place that has amazing shaved ice. Whenever people come visit we always take them there.

Then on Saturday we had a BBQ and people swam and played volleyball. Then at night we went to this cowboy town and of the kids absouluty loved. Then Sunday was the blessing and then we had everyone over for lunch in our very small apartment. I think we had about 16 adults and 10 kids. It was crazy in our little two bedroom apartment, but lots of fun. It was so good to see everyone and so much fun. Thanks for everyone that came. Max is very loved.

Paul ridind the bull at the cowboy town. It was so funny to watch him do it. He acutally hurt his thumb by doing it.

Seattle Visitors

About 2 weeks ago, we had some visitors come from Seattle. My dad, my stepmom, and my two little sisters came to Phoenix to come meet Max for the first time. It was a lot of fun to see them and to spend time with them. We did lots of fun things while they were here.

Dana and Zoe with Max Yes there is snow in Arizona. We drove to Sedona which is 2 hours from Phoenix and it was amazing to see all the red rocks especially with snow on them.

The Botanical Gardens had this glass show that was there and it was amazing to see.
Max finally had his first day of church about 2 weeks ago.
